A Report On RTE News That school Principal Assaulted A Student  Asbergers is very disturbing if it is confirmed see below for Details 

The principal, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, denies a charge of assaulting the then nine-year-old boy, who has Asperger’s syndrome.

Today was day two of the trial.

Two women, who were visiting the school, told the district court that they witnessed the defendant dragging a child across the school yard. The child was shouting for help.

One of them claimed she saw the principal catch the boy by the shoulders and hit him off a wall in the classroom, shouting at him that he had enough of him.  

Both women said they were very upset by the incident and one of them rang the gardai.

The principal was suspended in June 2014 pending an investigation into the claim.

He said he had taken hold of the child to bring him from a potential danger to a classroom for his own safety but denied assaulting him.
